We all worry about cost. That’s why Lees-McRae College works hard to ensure affordability for students and families. Lees-McRae College is one of the most affordable private colleges, with tuition costs 10 percent less than other private institutions in North Carolina.

In addition, the College awards $14 million annually in institutional scholarships and grants and helps facilitate more than $25 million in financial aid. That equates to an average Lees-McRae scholarship of $12,471 and an average financial aid package of $22,736.

We all need a little support. At Lees-McRae College, students can find it all along the way. With a student to faculty ratio of 15:1, students experience a truly nurturing environment that helps them reach their full potential.

Admissions and financial aid staff work with families throughout the enrollment process and help answer all of the tricky questions along the way. Upon enrollment, students become part of a residential living and learning community, providing convenience, safety and full access to campus activities and resources.

Throughout each student’s academic career, the Burton Center for Student Success delivers a comprehensive program designed to provide a full array of academic support, including First Year and Sophomore Seminars, Foundations courses, academic advising services, learning assistance, writing and tutoring services.

Career preparation is right in our mission. At Lees-McRae, we believe it’s never too early to prepare students for what comes after college. Whether students aspire to graduate studies or specific career paths, resources are readily available to help students achieve their goals.

Through the First Year and Sophomore Seminars, students are introduced to career and life planning topics, guest speakers, graduate school opportunities and much more.

Students have access to the College Central Network with 27,000 internship and 500,000 job listings and a network of more than 6,750 alumni.
